Doggett, N., 1982, NDLR1 Card Index, F.24 (Archive - Survey). SDV56213.

The NDLR1 pipe trench cuts across track to the south of Bradford Farm. Although the road does not appear to be of any antiquity on the surface, the trench revealed a considerable depth of stratigraphy associated with it. Shown on the 1844 Tithe Map.

Doggett, N., 1983, The North Devon Link Road (Stage One). Sampford Peverell to Tiverton, F.24 (Un-published). SDV363254.

A pipe trench along the northern fence line of the North Devon Link Road cut through a trackway revealing three distinct layers of road make-up. The layers do not suggest any great age for the track, although it is shown on the Tiverton Tithe Map of 1844. It terminates at a hedgebank to the south but may have once continued further to the south-east, following the line of a field boundary, to the Tiverton-Halberton parish boundary.
